Issue 2 2022 News, Fire & Safety

Technoswitch’s appointment as a distributor for the Fire & Security Techniques (FST) range of fire suppression solutions forms part of the company’s strategic plan to expand its range of suppression solutions.

Brett Birch, general manager at Technoswitch, says: “Technoswitch’s goal was to identify and secure a beneficial relationship with a reputable local fire suppression technology provider. We are very excited to be partnering with Fire & Security Techniques (FST), as they are a company that has a very similar DNA to that of Technoswitch. Both companies have strong local manufacturing, supplemented with respected international brands they distribute.

Fire & Security Techniques will benefit from our extensive footprint in South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa and our sales force will drive penetration of the FST product offering into the market. In addition, we will be able to offer FST customers technical support and training throughout the region”.

Neil Hughes, FST CEO, says his company is excited to be taking on board such a renowned and dedicated partner in the fire industry as Technoswitch during this stage of its growth strategy. Together with its other distribution platforms and partners, the company can now take FST to the next level, while remaining confident that it will maintain the high level of quality and support that its customers have come to appreciate.

The Technoswitch team is currently being upskilled to ensure they have all the required knowledge and skills to support the substantial FST product offerings.
